Big Apple Baseball

My wife & I took our annual trip to a city with a baseball stadium. And for the 2nd straight year, we went to two stadiums. It was Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium. Leading up to the trip, I was told that Yankee Stadium was the gem of all gems while Shea was the MLB dump.



After watching games at both stadiums, I can say that I was disappointed with one and surprised with the other.



For Yankee Stadium, I thought it was an okay place to watch a game. It was nothing like I… Continue

Thirty in 26 Success!

The real bulk of the driving was completed before I joined the trip in Baltimore. However, I believe the most difficult days still remained. Going from Philadelphia to DC in between 4pm and 7pm on a Thursday, and going from Chicago to Milwaukee between 4pm and 7pm on a Friday, with an overnight drive in between. Now that was going to be the most difficult stretch. 26 days was the new goal, and we were determined.



We left our hotel near the stadium in Philadelphia and headed… Continue

NYC and TWIB

With the entire trip almost completed, and Josh about to set this 'unofficial' record, TWIB wanted to tag along and see how we/he did it.



Basically, TWIB followed us around during our day in NYC, interviewing Josh, Eric, and me. They even took the… Continue

St. Louis to Boston

Thirty27 finally got some well-deserved recognition on July 4th as the St. Louis Cardinals were nice enough to take Josh and Su onto the field for batting practice (right). While this was a great moment of the trip, it was also just a little forshadowing of what would occur in NY in a few days.



Following the game in St. Louis, the Thirty27 team headed to Cincinnati, where Josh was interviewed for local television. Luckily, Josh has good interviewee skills, so he actually… Continue

Stadium "Superlatives"

Since we all have the passion for going to baseball stadiums all over this great country, it got me thinking a little bit: When we signed up one question was, what is your favorite stadium?



How about what is your LEAST favorite stadium that you've been to? What stadium has the best food? What stadium surprised you the most (like you thought it was going to be a dump, but it wasn't too bad)? What stadium disappointed you the most? What stadium would you go back to again (not the… Continue
